Mathematics equips pupils with a powerful set of tools to understand and change the world.
These tools include fluency, logical reasoning, problem solving and the ability to think in abstract ways.
White Rose Maths
Teachers follow the Mathematics curriculum explicitly, using the White Rose Maths hub scheme to support them.
Other resources are used to supplement and enhance the work.
Mastery and mastery with greater depth tasks are used to challenge and assess the children’s understanding.
Practical equipment is used widely throughout the school to reinforce the concepts taught and to practice skills learnt.

We use NUMICON in our maths lessons.
Numicon is an approach to teaching maths that helps your child to see connections between numbers.
From Oxford University Press, it supports your child as they learn early maths skills in primary school.
It is a multi-sensory way of learning, which means your child learns by seeing and feeling.

Do you have a child in year 4?
If so, they will be taking the statutory multiplication tables check (MTC) in June.
The purpose of the check is to determine whether pupils can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics.
It will also help your child’s school to identify pupils who may need additional support.
TEACHING TIMES TABLES
The National Curriculum states that fluency and conceptual understanding of multiplication tables should be developed in tandem because each supports the development of the other.
